Image Resize Function Tutorial jpg gif png Change Size

Master PHP Image Processing with Adam Khoury in this Video Textbook Series. In this video we learn how to script a universal PHP image resizing function that uses a handful of functions from the GD library in PHP. In our example the function will work for resizing JPG, GIF, and PNG type of images. Watch the video to find out how to apply the code below if it is not clear from the code comments. my_file.php <form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="image_upload_script.php"> Choose your file here: <input name="uploaded_file" type="file"/><br /><br /> <input type="submit" value="Upload It"/> </form> image_upload_script.php <?php // Access the $_FILES global variable for this specific file being uploaded // and create local PHP variables from the $_FILES array of information $fileName = $_FILES["uploaded_file"]["name"]; // The file name $fileTmpLoc = $_FILES["uploaded_file"]["tmp_name"]; // File in the PHP tmp folder $fileType = $_FILES["uploaded_file"]["type"]; // The type of file it is $fileSize = $_FILES["uploaded_file"]["size"]; // File size in bytes $fileErrorMsg = $_FILES["uploaded_file"]["error"]; // 0 for false... and 1 for true $kaboom = explode(".", $fileName); // Split file name into an array using the dot $fileExt = end($kaboom); // Now target the last array element to get the file extension // START PHP Image Upload Error Handling -------------------------------------------------- if (!$fileTmpLoc) { // if file not chosen echo "ERROR: Please browse for a file before clicking the upload button."; exit(); } else if($fileSize > 5242880) { // if file size is larger than 5 Megabytes echo "ERROR: Your file was larger than 5 Megabytes in size."; unlink($fileTmpLoc); // Remove the uploaded file from the PHP temp folder exit(); } else if (!preg_match("/.(gif|jpg|png)$/i", $fileName) ) { // This condition is only if you wish to allow uploading of specific file types echo "ERROR: Your image was not .gif, .jpg, or .png."; unlink($fileTmpLoc); // Remove the uploaded file from the PHP temp folder exit(); } else if ($fileErrorMsg == 1) { // if file upload error key is equal to 1 echo "ERROR: An error occured while processing the file.
